Manual therapy is a treatment technique utilized by many physical therapists to improve the functioning and healing of the musculoskeletal system. This includes soft tissue and joint mobilizations using different hands on techniques and/or through the use of tools, in order to improve the biomechanics of the affected area.
SOME OF OUR SERVICES:
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a skilled manual therapy technique which utilizes specialized tools to effectively and efficiently treat soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM is a rapidly growing method of treatment which generally addresses soft tissue degeneration and/or fibrosis.
Dry needling is a skilled physical therapy intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling (DN) is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue. It can also help diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation. – APTA-
This manual therapy technique is a skill acquired by all Physical Therapists through their academic curriculum and is based on a specific biomechanical assessment of joint mobility. It can be used for pain relief, relaxation, or increasing range of motion.
SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION
A manual therapy technique using the hands of a trained physical therapist to help to reduce pain and or swelling, to increase soft tissue mobility, and ultimately reduce impairments and improve function.
